Mini Cooper E

Post by wovenrovings »

I see the Mini Cooper E is being sold in Australia. Website says price is $34 870. That must make it about the cheapest new EV available?
Has 230 -260km range too...
Has anyone see one on the roads here?

Um, that seems to be the price for the petrol version. I'd say the electric might be a tad dearer. Perhaps the price isn't even settled yet. I doubt that there is stock in Australia as yet.

But I hope I'm wrong and your're right :P

Current guesstimate for the mini e is $55000aud.
Even so at that its not too badly priced considering its a bmw i3 with nostalgia factor (which is $70k car)

"The claimed driving range is up to 270km, but 230km on the European WLTP driving cycle.Given the target buyer is a city slicker driving that many kilometres in an average week, the balance seems appropriate."
I thought that equated to 1610km or more per week before you need to go to the service station, or fast charger.
